CHALLENGE STILL ON

So it has come to my attention that I will probably not be meeting my 18-pound weight loss challenge this month.

Lessons Leaned

What I have gained is knowing that while I did not meet the challenge, I’ve lost 10 pounds and dropped two dress sizes. I’ve found that I still love working out out with weights, and would rather lift than run any day.  I’ve also realized that while bread doesn’t call my name, I would rather just eat some of my flat-bread made from whole grain spelt flour, salt, and water, omitting the oil.  I will forever be tied to sugar in the form of fruit. Apples are my favorite but berries are a close second. So when I am tempted by eating an entire tray of cookies, I can opt for the fruit and my sugar cravings are satisfied. I’ve also learned that I can control my chocolate cravings by drinking my favorite tea: Guayaki’s Mate Chocolatte.

This challenge has taught me that I needed to make these changes for myself, not for a special occasion, a holiday, or for anyone else. I need to do this for me. It’s my choices everyday that make me who I am.

7 Days left in the challenge: Losing 4 more pounds.
